A witness at Cary's Meadow said he saw lots of police and other emergency service personnel there this morning after the alarm was first raised.
By early afternoon, though, it was once again a tranquil landscape of green grass and blue skies.
Not a soul was around – apart from the cows grazing and enjoying their lunch while basking in the sunshine.
There is no cordon in place and all officers and police cars have gone.
